The Alt-Right Speech that Outraged CNN and the Rest of the Media

Richard Spencer is director of the National Policy Institute. A speech he gave at an alt-right conference in Washington over the weekend has created something of a tempest in the mainstream media–although it goes without saying that the mainstream media are more than a bit tempest-prone these days.

At any rate, the video above shows Spencer giving his speech in its entirety (that is assuming it doesn’t get removed from YouTube), while below are the first two paragraphs of a CNN report on that same speech:

Washington (CNN)The racism and anti-Semitism of the alt-right movement were on display Saturday in Washington when its members gathered to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory.

The president of the alt-right National Policy Institute Richard Spencer’s remarks were posted Sunday on YouTube by “Red Ice Radio,” which describes itself as “covering politics and social issues from a pro-European perspective.” The Atlantic magazine, which is recording footage of Spencer for a documentary they’re working on, also published a video of the same event showing audience members apparently giving the Nazi salute.

There was also an on-air discussion on CNN that raised a lot of angst–not so much for anything said by the speakers but for a subtitle that appeared at the bottom of the screen reading “Alt-Right Founder Questions if Jews are People.”


In reality, the subhead, or chyron, as it’s called, is a bit misleading. What Spencer said was: “One wonders if these people are people at all, or instead soulless golem animated by some dark power to repeat whatever talking point John Oliver stated the night before.” If you watch the video, you will see that by “these people” he was actually referring to mainstream media pundits, strategists, and political consultants, not Jews (although, yes, the word “golem” pertains to a creature out of Jewish folklore).

Be that as it may, the chyron at the bottom of the screen opened CNN to a barrage of criticism–not because it was misleading, but because some people viewed it as a case of the network “aiding/abetting a new Nazi party,” as one overwrought Twitter user put it.

You can go here to view an RT report on the controversy, along with a sampling of the Twitter storm that accompanied it, although the article provides no link to the full speech–which is why I am posting this post, so that people can see it and judge for themselves.

CNN’s Jim Sciutto referred to Spencer’s speech as “hate-filled garbage.” Much of the rest of the media have also joined in the mudslinging, and according to a report here a Politico editor resigned after publishing Spencer’s home address and calling for people to take up “baseball bats.”

I must confess: prior to today I had never even heard of Richard Spencer, although I am certainly familiar with the work of Kevin MacDonald, who also was a speaker at the same event. If you are so inclined you can go here to access MacDonald’s presentation. While I agree with much of what he says, I take strong exception to his reference to Muslims as “not a high I.Q. group.” Comments like this are not only erroneous, they are also ill-advised as they lend fuel to critics’ charges that the Alt-Right is a “white supremacist” movement.

Christians and Muslims have a natural basis for affinity: we both revere Jesus and his mother Mary. This is in contrast to Jews, who disparage and denigrate Christ in their Talmud and who have endeavored to create secular societies while at the same time demeaning religious faith and promulgating the “hatred of whitey” that Spencer deplores in the video above. It would make abundant sense, then, for Christians and Muslims to unite, but I’m not sure the Alt-Right fully understands this.

Finally, I’ll close with this very interesting video I came across. The young man is quite a street preacher, as you’ll see. Watch as he fends off an attack from an enraged, Christ-hating Jewish woman with nothing more than his own grace and eloquence.

  1. “…apparently giving the Nazi salute…”

    ‘Apparently?” BS, he was toasting Trump with his drink. Why does the world have to revolve around a group of people who are delusional, thinking they are God’s chosen?

    In the USA, they control our economy thru their control of the FED and the US Treasury. They control our Congress which never misses a chance to send them tons of free money and weapons which they use to commit crimes against humanity, which we protect by vetoing any UN resolution that might look into their crimes. They own Hollywood, which is or has turned into an open sewer, pushing out movies filled with nudity, graphic sex and over-the-top violence, which makes them billions while corrupting minds..
    They own most of the MSM, which is used to push lies and propaganda into gullible minds.

    So what in the Hell are they so scared of or is this just posturing to gather the one emotion they demand from us GOYIM, pity?

    Or maybe they’re afraid that since they’ve been caught lying for Hillary and pushing out psyops, that maybe the sheeple will start wondering what else are lies?

    The hate mongers at SPLC have him in their sights.


    Will he rise to the rank of the new ‘Hitler,’ or does one have to be a PM or president of nation for that accolade?

  2. CNN workers and their guests think that Jews are “soulless golem animated by some dark power”. That is what THEY had in mind when they heard these words. XD

    In my opinion it’s because Jews and Jews-friendly people cannot live without anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is a core of Jewish identity. Jews rejected world and their inhabitants. Jewishness in principle is rejection, criticism, negation. (((They))) just cannot think in different way. What (((they))) can do and are trying to do is make this way of thinking profitable. That is how Jews invented their victim identity. This victim wants to be constantly apologize and compansate.

  3. This pretty lady (oh, I’m so unfair, I know):

    said she “froze” when she saw the raised arm salute.
    In the introduction a certain Snyder woman starts her indictment of the National Policy Institute by saying “every man and woman, irrespective of religion, color, is deserving of respect.”
    Sounds perfectly reasonable, doesn’t it? But think about it for a moment: is “every” justified? Are criminals, psychopaths and nation robbers deserving of respect? If exposing them amount to lack of respect, that’s fine.
    The Snyders seem to think that the only group NOT deserving respect are white Christians. They are the ‘deplorabl;es.’ Furthermore, their professions of respect for any other non-Jews, indeed irrespective of color, are hypocritical propaganda strategies.

  4. CNN is a lying criminal news network,a weaponized news outlet,that during the recent elections stopped all pretence of being journalists but were actually campaigning for the Hildabeast,_it would be good to see that fake news network fall,the whole world knows what and who they are,a minority of people doing facist salutes does not match their Crimes,for they have been using false information to permote war, and just look at the devastation and death they have been part of,they have long been an arm of the pro war neo liberal left,they are analogue dinosaurs in a new digital age,and new alt media has caught them flat footed,hopefully this evil network will be given a final KO…p.s. When you drain the swamp even just a little ,it has revealed just what crawls underneath..

  5. A terrific/provocative post. I’m of white-European (German) extraction, but I’m an egalitarian. I can’t espouse the denigration of others who are not white. Spencer is due his freedom of speech, but I’m especially appalled that the MSM picks up in particular on the “anti-Semiteness” of all of this (I guess the Jake Tappers et al know on which side their bread is buttered). Spencer, to my observation, is an extremist racist in the same way that the Jewish extremist racist arrogantly boasts that goyim exist to “hew wood and carry water” for the “chosen people.” Jesus had it right (also other spiritual lights) in His espousal of tolerance, love, forgiveness, and non-judgmental conduct. It’s addled man who perverts the commonality of all humans into differences, divergences rather than convergences. I can certainly find common ground with Muslims of the Middle East who have been colonized, patronized, humiliated, and thieved of their treasures for too many decades and who then strike back in outrage and hopelessness. “I am a Palestinian” hating the Zionist enterprise and its leaders and acolytes (including the typical dumbed-down American) as they deprive all Palestinians of human rights, justice, dignity, land, freedom, peace et al. Does Spencer ever reflect (he does not, of course) that “non-white” Muslims kept civilization afloat in the Dark Ages so that the Spencers of later centuries could develop and refine their “exceptionalism” via the oppression of the “other”?

    These are random reflections surely evincing my naivete, confusion, inarticulateness, and, mostly, regret that we (humanity) have descended to the same ol’ same ol’ status of the “I’m bigger/better/stronger/whiter…than you and therefore am owed privileges not due to you; and I will do everything possible to deny equality to you” mentality that is pervasive in strata of societies all across the globe.

  6. You know, Robert, the older I get the more conscious I become of human folly, and the more glaringly apparent it becomes to me every day. It’s amazing we’ve survived as long as we have.
